I’m currently in the research stages for my project as we and it looks it it essentially comes down to the kind of project and what it’s needs are. I found this: https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-difference-between-Firebase-and-Meteor which is a pretty good comparison between FB and Meteor.

We just finished our first project with Firebase (with angularfire2)
Good:

  • Tight integration with Observables
  • Fast, automatic refresh of data
  • Offline capabilities

We spent lots of time for:

  • Finding good data structure, since redundancies are necessary
  • Writing code for data updates because of the redundancies
  • Limited query possibilities, which impacts again the data structure

Summary for Firebase:

  • Good for chat-like apps where you keep adding data, need to refresh data often and to update data almost never
